People who've made it big through anime

Though we may think otherwise, even mere TV shows and voice-overs can change a person's life upside down if channeled in the right way. These people rose from being another person in the crowd to being a star--thanks to anime!
Danny Choo

He's carved a niche for himself in the world NOT as Jimmy Choo's son, but as the best anime blogger, reviewer in the world so far. He's also got his own brand of dolls and oh well...I won't spoil the surprises Danny has got in store, do check him out to know more! He has his own TV show called Culture Japan.

Alodia Gosiengfiao

Alodia started out with cosplaying and gaming as her main foray when she entered into the limelight. Thanks to that, she's now an ambassador for oh so many things, and has even filmed a Culture Japan episode with Danny Choo!

Kaname Cosplayer

Kaname is THE man when its come to cosplay as far as I know. Famous for cosplaying Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy, he's moved on from that to become a global name, and to be a judge for many cosplaying events.

Reika

Reika

Reika is yet another person who is now a biggie as he/she has indeed gotten lucky with cosplaying. Then again, I wouldn't say lucky as Reika is truly amazing at it. I say he/she as Reika maintains the gender as Neutral in the official FB page.

Ashley Gosiengfiao

Ashley is Alodia Gosiengfiao's little sister. Like Alodia, she too made it big with cosplay and endorses many brands herself. She is now part of a band, and focuses on her musical career.

Hiroshi Kamiya

Hiroshi Kamiya
This man is responsible for voicing all the hot-bad-boys of anime. Thus leaving thousands of fan girls completely love-struck!!

Junichi Sawabe

Junichi Sawabe
Yet ANOTHER voice actor known to exclusively lend his voice to all the HOT anime boys! Ren Jinguji in UtaPri was very hot in all aspects, wasn't he? Especially that enchanting voice?

Yup! Sawabe right here!

Aki Toyosaki

Aki Toyosaki
Toyosaki has been working with many shows and is a muti-faceted person. But I'm quite sure that her fame shot up after she voiced cute little Yui Hirasawa from K-On! She even received the Best Actress Award!

Aya Hirano

Aya Hirano
I'll just name three characters to show how awesome she is:

1. Haruhi Suzumiya (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)

2. Misa Amane (Death Note)

3. Konata Izumi (Lucky Star)

Yui Horie

Yui Horie
Yes! Many might not have heard of Horie, but she has nonetheless been a prominent figure in the anime industry. For starters, she has voiced Yuuki Cross from Vampire Knight!!
15

Yoko Hikasa

Yoko Hikasa
A voice actor who made it VERY big after rigorously attending a school for voice actors? Yes, you read that right. That's Yoko right here! Mio Akiyama from K-On is a really cool example to actually explain about Yoko perhaps.

Maayo Sakamoto

Maayo Sakamoto
She voiced Ciel Phantomhive of Black Butler!!!

A complete legend just because of that!

Yui

Yui
Yui deserves all the limelight she gets and much more as she's one of those musicians who's really worked very hard to get to her position. And let's not forget the factor that anime boosted her career by a lot!
